Neil Young Tribute
No other musical act has influenced Akkedis as much as Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young.

Each performance of the classic rock trio from Somerset West contains at least three renditions of Young’s well-known (and lesser known) hits, like ‘Old Man’, ‘Down by the River’ and ‘Harvest Moon’. To do a full set, covering their idol’s work, is like a dream come true for twins Arthur and Rudi Dennis and bassist Adrian John Graham.
